My Purl's Snake-along is coming along, slowly but surely.
We've been working supplementary weft techniques at school. We sampled about a dozen techniques, and then we were free to experiment with what we liked best. My favourite techniques were one called closed shed pick-up (where one threads a stick through the areas he or she wants to cover with supplementary threads) and Leno, which is a type of open weave or gauze weave.
The pick-up is fun as it's a way to 'draw' on the warp. I played around with it and wove all sorts of wavy lines. I used invisible thread as for the main weft, and thicker, darker thread for the pick-up.
After I finished that I dyed and discharged another warp. Somehow, because the colours reminded so much of Hawaii and my best friend who lives there, it became a gift to her while I was working on it.
I still have many, many ends to weave in and it needs to blocked, but I've been lazy about finishing this week.
On a sad note, My Secret Pal, Lori, lost her mother this week. I'm trying to send her lots of positive thoughts from Nova Scotia.
